603 Turn L&D into the Business Partner Your Organization Needs

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET
Wednesday, December 6

Many things impact how businesses operate, including the great reset, layoffs in the tech sector, shifts in L&D roles to include more organizational development, requests around retention, employees looking for career pathways, and businesses looking to L&D to help address more challenges at a faster pace. All of these require a shift in how our L&D teams think and how we provide solutions to the organizations we support. Is your team ready to take on this shift?

In this interactive session we will discuss some of the newer request types for L&D from their leadership teams. We’ll do so while looking at some of the skill sets required for “the future of work” that seem to be closer than ever. We will track your team’s current skill sets and create an action plan for your team that maps out and defines how your team will acquire the skills required to make your team the business partner your organization needs it to be, putting your organization on the path to achieving its goals in a changing marketplace.

This session will include open discussion around what your peers believe to be the key skills and business requirements, what skills the industry has identified as important, and how people go about gathering those skills.

In this session you will learn:

  • Top skills L&D teams need going forward
  • How to map your team’s skills against the needed skills
  • How to strategically think about upcoming challenges we face as learning professionals
  • Why and how to create an action plan for your team to gain the needed skill sets over the next year
